Arlovski Out of K-1 Bout

Post by Gomi on 30/9/2010, 1:40 am

When K-1 announced the pairings for Saturday's Final 16 event, it made a special point of emphasizing the presence of former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski.

So much for that.

Although his fight with Raul Cătinaş has been announced as happening in less than four days, Arlovski wrote on Twitter that he is not going to be there.

"I would like to confirm that I am not participating in the K-1 on October 2nd," Arlovski tweeted on Tuesday evening.

There's been no announcement from K-1 or explanation from Arlovski, but reports have been rampant in recent months that K-1 simply can't afford to pay top-level fighters the kind of money they want to make. Arlovski's tweet is the latest in a steady stream of unfortunate pieces of news for K-1.

Oh..... that's disappointing.

We knew he wouldn't be in the WGP, but I preferred him in a super-fight.... his thai-boxing is underrated, and his chin isn't as bad as people make out.

I'd have been interested to see him in K-1, for sure.... not against the elite, but against second tier guys, why not?
